It's a beautiful day outside and so today I want to show my favourite lipsticks for the upcoming summer (I feel like I've been saying upcoming for a long time now...when is summer finally gonna be here? ok, rant over). These are all stunning bright shades because the brighter, the better!
From left to right:
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick: Power Peony 158
A light-medium pastel bubblegum pink with cool blue, but almost lavender undertones. Its build-able sheer coverage is so juicy and nourishing, and whilst the colour may be hard to pull off on some skin tones, I find it flawless for that sunny hot day.
Calvin Klein Lipstick: Mesmerize
Bright, bright, bright! This is by far the richest colour on my lips and it is also my favourite of the bunch. A bright hot pink, absolutely gorgeous and with such a lovely and moisturizing texture. I find this lipstick fairly long lasting and it was definitely worth the price I paid (longgggg time ago). This is the one I'm wearing on my blog profile picture and in the swatch it does look a tad darker than it actually is :)
Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick: Sassy Fuchsia
I've been a fan of Mary Kay stuff ever since I tried their amazing eye primer, so when I got this lipstick I knew it would be just as good quality. The colour is a beautiful vivid pink with purple undertones, and you only need a few swipes to get fabulous fuchsia lips. Again, the texture is heavenly and application is smooth. Long lasting and sheer finish also define this super pretty lip shade.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine: 62 Monte Carlo
A strawberry red with really fine shimmer. I thought the shade would be more pigmented when I got it, but I've now grown to love it. It's classy and delicate, and ideal for those who normally flinch away from bold red lip colours but still want to experiment. As with all of these lipsticks, this feels incredibly light weight on my lips. It doesn't last for more than a few hours, but that doesn't bother me too much.
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick: Jilted
This isn't the full-sized lipstick, but I love it nonetheless. It is a blue-toned, fuchsia-purple shade, slightly darker than the Mary Kay one. I know what you are thinking, a cool undertone for summer? Yes! I wouldn't wear this during the day, but for an evening summer outing I think it works really well. I'm very fond of this one particularly because all Urban Decay products are cruelty-free and that wins me over!
Rimmel London Kate Matte Lipstick: Vibrant Coral 110
You can see how much I've used this and I am definitely in need of a new one! A vibrant coral shade, so SO hot and the ultimate shade for the summer. This orange based red shade suits my skin tone really well and it is so pigmented that you don't need much of it to get good coverage. Let's be honest, the whole Rimmel Kate range is great, and this is not any different!
What are your favourite summer lip colours?
Thanks for reading beauties and have a lovely weekend!
